8 items you should never pick at grocery store

Hello health-conscious folks! Let's talk about those grocery store aisles and the items your nutrition coach suggests giving a pass. Keeping it simple and focusing on an Indian perspective, here are eight items that might not be the best buddies for your health and fitness goals.

Sugary snacks in display like candy

1. Sugary Snacks:

Avoid those sugary snacks calling out to you. Whether it's candies or sugary cereals, they might seem tasty but can mess up your health and fitness plans. Stick to natural sweetness from fruits and dodge those processed sugars.

2. Packaged Fruit Juices:

Colorful packaged juices may look healthy, but they often hide added sugars and preservatives. Go for the real deal – fresh fruits or homemade juices – for that authentic taste without the hidden sugars.

Noodles at grocery store

3. Instant Noodles:

Instant noodles might be convenient, but they usually come with unhealthy preservatives and loads of sodium. Opt for whole grains like brown rice or quinoa for a healthier alternative.

4. Processed Meats:

Processed meats, like sausages and deli cuts, might be easy options, but they come with extra sodium and preservatives. Choose lean, fresh meats, or try out plant-based proteins for a healthier protein fix.

Breakfast cereal

5. Sugary Breakfast Cereals:

Many breakfast cereals act like they're healthy but are often loaded with sugars. Check those labels and go for whole-grain cereals or traditional Indian breakfasts like poha or upma for a nutritious start.

6. Flavored Yogurts:

Flavored yogurts often pack a sugary punch that can derail your health goals. Stick to plain, unsweetened yogurt and throw in your favorite fruits for some natural sweetness.

White bread

7. White Bread:

White bread might be a staple, but it lacks the nutrition of whole-grain alternatives. Grab whole wheat or multigrain bread for that extra fiber and nutrients your body craves.

8. Instant Mixes:

Instant mixes might promise a quick meal, but they often hide additives and preservatives. Stick to traditional Indian cooking with fresh ingredients for a healthier and more authentic meal.
